A message from the Superintendent, to all Chester Upland School District families:
As you know, PSSA testing begins when we return from Spring Break. We are extremely excited for a great testing season in our district, and we want to make sure our students are feeling ready for the exams.
We ask that parents pay special attention to prompt, uninterrupted student attendance during the PSSA testing weeks, and the Keystone weeks that follow. You can help students be ready for testing by encouraging them to get plenty of sleep the night before. We want to remind you that breakfast is available for students in school. If students are feeling anxious, you can reassure them that the assessment gives them an opportunity to demonstrate their learning and helps teachers plan the best possible instruction for them.
For those who are interested, additional information about the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment is available online at www.education.pa.gov
Thank you, and enjoy the rest of Spring Break. We look forward to seeing all of our students return on Tuesday, April 23rd.
